we've been hoping to get Sandy's down to DIO for some time now... representing all things great about the SF surfy-rocky-throwback vibes, Sandy's couldn't be a better fit to wrap up a Saturday evening... and you might even see a special guest friend of the DIO family come thru with some projections to boot... stay tuned..
On his new EP, Prom, songwriter Alexi Glickman (Sandy) wraps five melodic gems with layers of vintage tape echo and open tuned Stratocaster shimmer for a dreamy late summer slow dance. Recorded mostly live to a 1960s Scully 4-track in a house in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California, Prom centers around Sandy's guitar— an on old Fender, open tuned, echoplexed—reverberating in the wood panels of the forest dwelling turned recording studio.

“Imagine if The Beach Boys recorded Pet Sounds again after listening to the Polyvinyl back catalog and you get some idea of where this is rooted” New Noise Magazine
